My Mom's Baked Chicken


Growing up in Jamaica Sunday dinner was the one thing I looked forward to every week. I literally only had one request and that was "chicken leg and macaroni & cheese". Naturally, as I got older and was introduced to cooking by an ex-boyfriend I just had to learn how to make the bake chicken mummy made. After a while I began to add and take away certain ingredients and made it my own.



INGREDIENTS
Chicken (I always use leg quarters but that's a personal choice)
Scallions
Thyme
Onion
Scotch Bonnet Pepper (optional)
Sweet/Bell Pepper (for garnish-optional)
Black Pepper
Paprika
All Purpose Seasoning
Barbecue Sauce 

METHOD
CLEAN YOUR CHICKEN!
Season with scallions, thyme, onion, scotch bonnet pepper, black pepper, paprika, all purpose seasoning and fish & meat sauce. Rub it all together and let it marinade for a couple hours or at least 30 mins. 
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. 
In a large baking dish line the bottom with aluminum foil and lightly grease with butter. 
Place the chicken in the pan about an inch apart. 
(DO NOT THROW AWAY THE JUICE AND SEASONING LEFT OVER)
Bake for 30 mins uncovered. 
Turn your chicken pieces after the 30 mins and add the seasoing and juices you had saved from earlier. 
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for another 30 mins. 
After the 30 mins brush on your favorite barbecue sauce on both sides of the chicken and put it back in the the over covered for an additional 10 minutes. 

Garnish with bell peppers and serve your chicken with whatever sides you want. Rice, mac & cheese, mash potatoes, Hawaiian rolls, baked beans, or a combination of all!
